Thanks to increased competition from top airlines, it’s now easier and more affordable than ever for people in North America to visit Belize. Air Canada and WestJet now offer non-stop flights from Toronto and Calgary, and all four of the biggest airlines in the United States now have non-stop flights to Belize from major cities across the country.
Unlike the tourist hotspots of Ambergris Caye and Placencia, the Cerros Peninsula in northern Belize’s Corozal District still has great properties available at very reasonable prices. With a small-town atmosphere, beautiful weather, and lots of nature right at your doorstep, Corozal is also home to a thriving expat community.
One of the best places to live in Corozal is Cerros Sands, a master-planned, gated community located right on the beautiful Chetumal Bay across from Ambergris Caye. Safe, secure, and built with modern infrastructure, Cerros Sands allows you to enjoy life to the fullest.

Advantages to Buying Property in Belize
The government of Belize warmly welcomes foreign investment. Foreigners have the same rights as locals to buy, sell, or rent property, and property taxes are assessed at just 1-1.5% of the undeveloped value of the land. Belize also permits the establishment of offshore corporations that can own and manage property, and the country imposes zero capital gains taxes.
With a stable, democratic government, an English-speaking population, and liberal residency programs, it’s easy to live or retire in Belize. And with the currency permanently pegged at 2:1 to the US dollar, you’ll never have to worry about fluctuations or economic instability.
If you’ve ever considered buying a vacation home, investment property, or retirement home for yourself in Belize, the time to act is now.
